Jason started writing for children 20 years ago when he landed a job as the fresh-faced reporter on the Young Telegraph. His enthusiasm for innovative and inspiring children’s writing has stayed fresh as ever it was. His face hasn’t. Now with beard, one shade of grey, Jason has created books and multimedia on a huge range of non-fiction topics.
What he really wants to do, however, is make a mark in fiction. Thanks to Catherine, his first picture book, The Sheep that Saved Christmas has been snapped up by Random House.
When he’s not writing, Jason helps run Calder House, a special school where children with specific learning difficulties, not only learn to read, but learn to love reading.
